Details of Helambu Trek:

Incredible view from Helambu TrekEspecially, Helambu Trek is exploring Tamang & Sherpa Lifestyle, Their Religion of Buddhism where is the oldest and historical Monastery in Tarkegyang. It is a short and easy trek situated between the Shivapuri and Langtang National Park and easily accessing from Kathmandu. Helambu Trek explores so many historical Monasteries, colorful rhododendron flowers, superb white snow mountain views, picturesque Sherpa & Tamang settlements, friendly people and after all unspoiled culture of the area. This trek is more like a cultural trek than the mountain and glacier expeditions. The people here think of themselves as Sherpa’s, but their relationship with the Sherpa of the Solukhumbu is distant. The dialects spoken are also different. People here follow the Buddhist religion, so you will find many old Buddhist monasteries in the villages. Tarkeghyang (3500m) where are the biggest monastery and many Buddhist pilgrimages go to pray there and another Sherpa town along the way, which bears its own story. Our trek starts from Kathmandu after driving by bus/car to Sundarijal, which is just 13kms from Kathmandu. We then continue to ascend to Chisopani where we spend the first night just outside the valley. Chisopani offers great views of the mountains and landscape. We then almost make a full circle going through Kutumsang, Tharepati, Tarkeghyang, and Sermathang and finally to Melamchi Pul Bazaar where we take the bus back to Kathmandu.
